Training for the Care Sector

Experienced, engaging, empowering trainers and consultants

Every Care Skilled trainer and consultant brings decades of experience, knowledge, and insight to clients and learners. However, they offer an extra advantage that only really becomes apparent when you’ve started working with us.

Not only have they all worked at different levels within the health and social care sector in their career but, as part of their duties here at Care Skilled, they teach at and consult with dozens of different organisations a year. That means they’re exposed to different approaches to best practice across the country as well as different care and corporate goals. They’re constantly listening and learning from a wide range of clients incorporating the very best in modern and innovative practice into their courses and consultancy work.

Over 200 short courses plus bespoke courses for your organisation

We offer over 200 social care and clinical courses to staff and managers in health and social sector organisations. Our team know both sectors so well that we will develop custom courses for clients when needed – we developed a course on ‘Sexual Rights for People with Learning Disabilities for a major national learning disability support provider.

eLearning opportunities

With over 100 eLearning courses, Care Skilled offers clients and their staff one of the widest selections of distance tuition in the UK. You can choose from one-off individual lessons on a pay per course basis or you can open an account with us. For clients taking the account option, you and your learners can access their own dashboard from which they can buy new eLearning courses on credit. We then bill you on account. At any time, you can check on the progress of your learners on the courses they’re taking.

Blended learning for maximum flexibility

Staff members can take the knowledge part of their studies online with our eLearning option and they can top this up with a classroom session for the skills and confirmation aspects of their education. Learners complete the eLearning part of their studies at your and their convenience. Once they’ve passed the online element, you can then book them in for the classroom session. Classroom sessions last, on average, 2 hours and they deal with the practical aspects of the course. The eLearning part of our blended system offers you value for money and offers your staff convenience. We can deliver up to four courses in a day for the price of one classroom course saving you up to 75%.
